Excellent find very friendly and lovely food and service

We booked this on a spur of a moment thing for the weekend with our son and future daughter in law.

We've stayed in the lakes for years in many hotels and paid a lot more and had worse rooms and food!. When we arrived we were immediately made welcome by the staff and shown to our rooms. Rooms were exceptionally clean and had fresh towels arranged on the bed. Room had also not long been painted too. We were not really expecting too much with the money we paid but what. Surprise breakfast was wonderfully cooked and their was plenty of choice for all from fruit and yoghurt to cereals and full English breakfast presented, lovely and plenty of coffee and toast too. We had a great weekend and ate in the restaurant, had the excellent christmas three course meal with all the trimmings food was lovely, presented well and cooked fresh. Bar was very welcoming and we had excellent staff especially Sinead who made the best "cheeky v's". Many thanks to all who made it a lovely trip we will definitely be returning!

Short Break

Made a warm welcome and given an upgrade on arrival.

All the staff were very friendly and as we had read previously the breakfast was good and very tasty. Centrally situated in Bowness and we really enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to return.

Ideal accommodation in the centre of Bowness

The people were very friendly, let us park our car well before checking in and after checking out.

The room was very cosy but included everything we needed for one night. The room was clean and comfortable.

Excellent stay

Staff very curteous and helpful.

The rooms were clean and well kept though i would have preferred it a little warmer. We were upgraded due to a cancellation (at no extra cost) so breakfast was therefore served in our room. Lovely breakfast very plentiful and hot. We ate at lunchtime in the bar (also given 10% voucher off meals) and found there was a good selection on offer. The Royakl Oak Inn obviously does very well as a pub and was very busy throughout the day.

A decent place to stay

A lovely pub with accommodation above.

Ticks all the boxes, comfortable and well run. Only comment is the car parking, which you soon get used to!

Friendly staff, warm and comfy room, excellent breakfast, what more can you ask.

Handy to have free parking, right in the centre of Bowness.

Join the queue for the shared bathroom, it's a pub after all but no complaints from me.
